MikeW saidFor me it is cuddling up with my man as I fall asleep. Being an introvert, I don't mind being alone. I have plenty of friends so I'm not lonely. In fact I'm happy and content most of the time. Sex would be nice but at my age I'm fine with just jerking off to porn. (Damn there is a lot of it!) I miss the companionship a little but not that much. I certainly don't miss the disagreements and arguments about stupid shit. But at night when I go to fall asleep I cuddle up with a pillow but it doesn't offer that sense of wonder, warmth, man scent and security that another man does. That, I miss.
What about you?
I miss the companionship and the commeraderie. I miss the deep friendship we had through our relationship, and those moments when you can say nothing but look into his eyes and see everything.
I was with my ex-partner for almost 15 yrs, his job moved us to another state, and in less than 16 months we seperated. I am extroverted, he WAS introverted. I am glass-half FULL, he WAS glass-half EMPTY. We made friends down here and long story short, he become too close to his best friend. They are in a relationship now.. he literally left me for another man. At the beginning it was rough but my ex and I are good friends still. I realize now that he had learned enough from me, and I from him, and now it is time for me to share myself with someone else.. eventually.
My friend is now out-going, enthusiastic, and sees the light at the end of a tunnel, instead of the darkness. I feel proud and privledged to have been with him as long as I did. I miss seeing him everyday, he has a killer smile, and also laughing with him and sharing those moments that no one has any idea about.
It has been 1 1/2 yrs now since we parted and I know that somewhere in my future I will find a willing partner to share my life with.
